Now it’s easier than ever to use SAG-AFTRA professionals.

SAG-AFTRA has developed a new way to make your Corporate/Educational & Non-Broadcast productions (including Internet and New Media use) a snap. Not only do you get more flexibility when using SAG-AFTRA performers, you’ll have access to new, simplified rates available in the Washington-Mid Atlantic market for the first time.

You can now choose a cast composed of both union performers and others in any manner you like. Just pay SAG-AFTRA rates to the professional performers you use.

You can get the work done quicker and better with a SAG-AFTRA on-camera narrator using the new half-day rate. Talented SAG-AFTRA performers can get the job done in less time and add polish and professionalism to your production.

Now there’s no need to navigate a rate structure with different categories. There’s a single, lower rate for all Co/Ed (a.k.a. Industrial) projects, with unlimited Non-Broadcast, Internet and New Media use included. Even integration and customization is completely negotiable with the performer’s consent.


If your project is made for or by a federal agency, you have even more options available to you to make working with union performers easier. In addition to paying with a credit card and processing the project though a paymaster service, you’ll be able to skip all supplemental use payments for an additional 55 percent of salary with the performer’s consent. For more information and quotes, contact WMAwaiver@sagaftra.org.
